Founded in 1872 as the Munster Model Yacht Club, the Royal Munster Yacht Club merged with the Royal Cork Yacht Club, then dormant, in 1966; the name was retained in the RCYC’s official name.

One of this club’s feats was the introduction of the 12 foot dinghy to Ireland, locally built, in 1923. For many years it enjoyed the hospitality of the Cork Harbour Motor Yacht Club at Crosshaven.

Plate CII of the French 1923 Album i.e. ‘Album des pavillons nationaux et des marques distinctives’ shows an undefaced Red Ensign and the burgee: vertically divided red-white-blue (apparently 1:1:2); a blue shield, royally crowned, bearing three yellow antique crowns (Munster) is placed in the white stripe.

The image above shows both flags while the burgee adorns an ashtray, here:
